Stargate Atlantis actor Jason Momoa has been tapped to play the infamous warrior in the remake of Conan The Barbarian according to THR.

As reported earlier, Jason was in the running along with Kellan Lutz (Twilight) as well as Jared Padalecki (Supernatural).

Marcus Nispel will be directing the film and Conan should be in theaters by summer of 2011. Shooting will start in mid-March in Bulgaria.

Sources tell that producers are trying to get Mickey Rourke to play the father.

    well, I’m torn:
    on the one hand I love Jason Momoa, he was my absolute favorite character on Stargate Atlantis, he’s good-looking, a solid actor and he’s got great fighting skills (or at least he knows how to mimic fighting very well…)
    on the other hand, is it really such a great idea to shoot a remake of Conan the Barbarian ? I mean this movie is iconic, what if the movie’s bad? does this mean we’ll never see Jason anywhere ever ??

    plus I think Jared Padalecki would have been really hot as a half-naked barbarian :))

    That’s fine. Personally, I would’ve preferred Jared Padalecki, simply because I love him dearly, but that’s ok. Jared’s busy with Supernatural anyway.
